Finzi-Contini's garden review.

Image result for Finzi contini's garden bookIt's been a while since I've uploaded a book review but here has come the day, I've finally finisched tests so I will have a lot more time to read, so expect some reviews soon. 

You've heard of this book in a recent tag that I've uploaded, this was the last book that I had to read because someone had me to read it.
This was given to me by my literature teacher for school and I didn't like it.
This book talks about the story of this people that are Jews and it's set up in 1939 so when the racial laws were up in the city of Ferrara in Italy.
The only reason why I didn't like this book was the fact that I was expecting something more exiting, something that would have stayed in my mind and in my heard for ever, something that I would have always remembered as a really good book, the problem was that there was no point in writing this. 
This is not teaching anything because it tells the story about the main character Giorgio falling in love with Micol, she liked him at the beginning but then she fell in love with his friend Malnate, this is it.
This talks about their story, he liked her, he tried to have her fall in love but then this is it.
There are some historical references about the ''Leggi Fascistissime'' of 1925-26 and it talks about the fact that life of a Jews was hard because they couldn't attend the tennis club and in university they had some issues. 
But it was not telling me anything else.
If you want to read something about that historical period I suggest that you read Anne Frank's diary or Primo Levi ''If this is a man'', I don't suggest this one at all, it's boring and it didn't tell me anything.
I was so let down at this.

How to write and publish a book.

Readers always come at the end asking to themselves if they would ever be able to write and publish a book.  Well, it is possible to write a book, and I can give you some suggestions right now. First of all you have to study the market a little bit, if you want to write a romance but everyone is crazy for horror at the moment, probably it's not the best time for it and your work need to wait or it won't be as succesful as you will want it to be. If the ''style'' that you are writing at the moment is successful then make sure that the story is original and it is not a copy of a copy. Do not make grammar mistakes. Avoid them, make sure that someone else reads the book for you and valutates it, if you want I can do it for you, check the services page to know how to contact me, someone should tell you if your book is good or it have no chanches.
Edit your book, I know averyone has been talking about if editing is useful or not and listen to me, yes it is.

This is your time to shine - for all the authors that need to market their novel - FREE

In Italy the government gives every person who turns 18 a bonus of 500€ to spend on book. Since I want to improve my English and to help people I have thought about buying self published authors and traditional published novels but of new writers to help them be recognized and promote their work if it is good.  All you need to do is write to me an email at readtosurvive.blog@gmail.com telling me about your book, what is the story and all you want and follow me on Twitter or/and Instagram (3.1k followers) I will select 5 books a month to buy and review, if your book is too good to be true it will be suggested to my blogger friends and it will get a permanent spot under all my articles with a direct link to buy it.  At the beginning of the month I will announce on the blog who the winners are and I will announce when to expect the review.
(Obviously understand that some months I can buy 2 books instead of 5 because sometimes the bonus doesn't work and sometimes I just don't have…

Aggiornamenti 2019

Ciao a tutti, come state? E' da un po' che non scrivo sul blog ed il motivo è che mi sono voluta prendere una pausa per via della scuola, della stanchezza e anche per via del fatto che non ho per niente letto in questo periodo, non ero proprio nel mood, semplicemente non mi voglio forzare a scrivere, il blog per me è una passione e non un lavoro, se non me la sento di pubblicare un articolo non lo faccio, non voglio forzarmi. Comunque, ho alcuni aggiornamenti su cui ho potuto meditare in questo periodo di assenza. Innanzitutto ho pensato ad alcune serie che possono uscire. La prima, quella a cui tengo di più è la serie sulla scrittura che sarà pubblicata ogni lunedì, con questa serie vi informerò di come procede il mio processo di scrittura ed editing di entrambi i miei libri che penso di pubblicare fra poco, ho deciso di autopubblicarmi per una serie di motivi che vi spiegherò in un apposito articolo che uscirà in uno dei lunedì dedicati alla scrittura, la serie si chiamerà …
